March 20th, 2013 | Itoi

Here are the latest posts by Shigesato Itoi on his special Miiverse community. Luckily he didn’t say too much while the stream was going on yesterday, whew!

sakura I’ve eaten “sakura mochi” from Toraya twice now this year. They’re neither too overpowering nor too understated. They’re truly delicious. The MOTHER 2 revival is tomorrow.
name1 When you’re playing the game and it asks you for your name, I suggest you answer with your real-life name. (Shigesato Itoi)
name2 I typed out a sort of serious message now! “Treasure your name”, basically.
serious There’ve been requests of, “Always say serious stuff, please.” So I’m going to try hard to do so to the best of my ability. gimme 10 yen
streamannounce I’m thinking of starting my Wii U MOTHER 2 playthrough on Friday night. I’m considering streaming it online. It’s possible I might say something dumb or not very serious, but I’ll try to be caref…

Haha, Itoi is so random.

Would love to meet him in real life, he sounds really interesting and funny.

Hahaha… I bet Nintendo reps are telling him to post seriously on Miiverse, as all game developer/producers only post professional messages.
